Happy Independence day to my fellow Nigerians. Trust you are all enjoying this beautiful day. Concluding with my ode to Nigeria (see previous post: Nigeria Puff Puff ) with a dessert I am calling Ogi Parfait (O’Parfait for short)
Ogi (Pap) is a Nigerian breakfast cereal which is made from corn. While Parfait (means ‘Perfect’ in French) is a dessert which originates from France. It is made by boiling cream, egg, sugar and syrup to create a custard-like puree. The American version sometimes includes granola, nuts, yogurt etc.
My take on this recipe using Ogi (Pap) combines the French and American versions to create a simple and healthy Nigerian dessert, which is suitable for people who are Lactose intolerant.

You can be very flexible with your parfait recipe e.g. you can use one type of ogi or mix your ogi with yoghurt.
